Cormorant is an original design for an extravagant display serif typeface inspired by the Garamond heritage, hand-drawn and produced by Catharsis Fonts. While traditional Garamond cuts make for exquisite reading at book sizes, they appear clumpy and inelegant at larger sizes. The design goal of Cormorant was to distill the æsthetic essence of Garamond, unfetter it from the limitations of metal printing, and allow it to bloom into its natural refined form at high definition.
Cormorant is characterized by scandalously small counters, razor-sharp serifs, dangerously smooth curves, and flamboyantly tall accents. While many implementations of Garamond at small optical sizes already exist (including the open-sourced EB Garamond by Georg Duffner), Cormorant aims for the sparsely populated niche of display-size counterparts that exploit the high resolution of contemporary screens and print media to the fullest.
